    Yes

    Someone certainly knows that first hand....   Lol Okay, so I'm not always sensitive. But, I certainly have my days when I just blow everything out of proportion. (If you are commenting....well....you'd better watch it.) LOL

    Lots More

    I'm very sensitive, but I hate drama and I hate hurting people's feelings. So if someone hurts me, I pretend it doesn't bother me. Inside I never forgive them for it.

    Underneath It All

    I grew up in a very tough household, so being sensitive wasn't a good thing. So I always appear much tougher on the outside than I really am. I don't think people realize how personally I tend to take some things. Now, don't get me wrong, I don't take offense to every little...

    Sensitive But Not Susceptible

    As time passes by... my soul becomes more and more sensitive. But only my dearest persons can recognize it. I never cried while watching a film...and now? Now my eyes suddenly become wet and a tear is formed in the corner.... after a while teardrops fall down my face.... and it...

    I Only Act Tough

    A lot of people think that I am made out of stone and have a brick instead of a heart. They think that Nothing ever gets me down and I have no feelings. But inside I do. I may come up with a sarcastic remark when someone puts me down. But inside I am shattered. I may act like I...

    Be Nice.

    People don't think I'm that sensitive because I don't let anyone see it.  I feel like I'm being weak when I do that, and I don't want that weakness feeling so I bury it.  I hide my emotions

    Helpless

    So today my parents and I were sitting in the TV room and I made a comment on a political commercial that came on TV, not knowing that would start an argument because my parents apparently didn't agree with me. Long story short, my dad ended up saying, "Well, you're just gonna...

    Let everything that's been planned come true.

    Let them believe. And let them have a laugh at their passions. Because what they call passion actually is not some emotional energy, but just the friction between their souls and the outside world. And most important, let them believe in themselves. Let them be helpless like...

    Most Definately.

      I spent years hiding emotion and feeling. They are all there, just under the skin. Ya, I guess you could say faccade. I try to not hide them so hard, but when I do show them, I usually end up getting hurt.

    Am I Am Being Too Sensitive?

    A few days ago, I was told by a friend that an aquantance said I was "Hard on the eyes". He didn't defend me so I guess he thinks so too. I dress nice, wear minimal makeup and jewelry but I am overweight and 60 years old. I have tried to get past it but that really...

    If People Only Knew

    I wonder sometimes what would be the result if people only knew how much their flippant comments truly hurt? I'm not made of stone. Yes I put myself between the devil and the deep blue sea sometimes. But usually that's because I know that others are being hurt and I figure I can...

    The Bottle

    I've always been a very sensitive person, but if you knew me on a daily basis you would probably say otherwise. I'm much like a bottle, with the ability to contain my emotions. I'm used to wonder why I couldn't seem to stop doing this, but rather than consider it a curse I...

    I Wasn't Always This Sensitive

    When I was younger, I was much less sensitive. My brother would call me names, yell at me, my parents would get mad at me, and I really didn't have a reaction. I would watch sad movies and just think "that's sad" whereas everyone around me was crying. I don't really know what...

    I am a very sensitive person, but I put on the tough act. I wouldnt let you know something hurt me, I would just get back at you. I wish I could show my sensitive side, but then that would show weakness on my part.

    Don't Like For People to See Me Cry

    When growing up I was taught by my dad that crying is a weakness, so I stopped crying in front of people. The other day my guy said something on the phone that made me cry (tears of release and happiness) and if he was aware of me crying he didn't let on.

    Ha, I even had a slight hesitation, when clicked "Me Too" to enter this group. But I admit it - I'm a ***** lol. I get all angry, nervous, "leave me alone" and ****, when instead I'd rather cry... And I do, when I finally am alone.
